Hi Peach,

My Mum is great the majority of the time which I’m lucky for. She does have a good relationship with my daughter but wasn’t able to cope when I was trying to work in that she’d moan about my daughters foibles. This was all to much for me so I had to give up work and have relied on benefits since. The worst thing about this is that everyone I know works and I don’t. It makes me feel less than but I’m trying to accept that my personal situation means I am unable to work. I am lucky in so many respects though so that’s what I’m focussing on. Thanks for your kindness.
